Point Lepreau nuclear plant reduces power for refueling

NB Power started reducing power at the Point Lepreau nuclear generating station in New Brunswick to allow for adjustments to be made to equipment associated with refueling the reactor.

When the station came back online in November 2012, the reactor had been filled with new fuel, which meant refueling was not required for several months.

The company said the process is expected, and the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission staff continues to monitor operations.
